Slowking is a Water & Psychic Pokémon which evolves from Slowpoke. It is vulnerable to Bug, Ghost, Grass, Electric and Dark moves. Slowking's strongest moveset is Confusion & Psychic and it has a Max CP of 2,545.
"Slowking undertakes research every day in an effort to solve the mysteries of the world. However, this Pokémon apparently forgets everything it has learned if the Shellder on its head comes off."
Confusion and Water Gun sport identical energy generation, though the former offers higher damage output.
Psychic costs the least amount of energy, and hits decently hard with STAB. Blizzard and Fire Blast both cost ridiculous amounts of energy to access, but provide can provide good coverage if you can get to it.
Slowking as a Psychic/Water Pokemon is quite bulky in PvP, though its moveset is cumbersome. Unspectacular energy generation and high energy costs from its charge moves makes it difficult to apply shield pressure, let alone access its coverage moves reliably.
Slowking's cumbersome movesets are its main drawbacks in PvP. Its Psychic typing and movesets easily handle Fighting-types in this league, but isn't as good against the rest of the meta.
Slowking too slow for Master League. Literally.
